Goleman (1998) noted that emotional intelligence competencies are usually categorized as self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills, conflict resolution and decision-making. Provide an assessment of your own emotional intelligences using these categories. In your post, reflect on which of these areas are your strengths. Which are your areas of needed growth? What steps might you take to develop areas of needed growth? Who are some authentic leaders who you might use as touchstones in order to hone personal strengths and mitigate areas needing improvement?
